It does what it says, or does it?

So, there I am, a brain the size of a rather insignificant planetoid and a snail infestation in my living room fishtank. Enter some anti-snail solution which claims to kill snails very much dead, and is completely harmless for all other aquatic beasties.

The former part? Oh, ever so true. It has laid waste to the snail population, killing indiscriminately, like Anakin adding the ex to ex-Sand people. So, no problems there. The latter? It's a bit like Anakin beheading a couple of Jawas for the hell of it. Not so good.

Conclusion? The next time I'll simply fish the little bastards out the tank and send them on a trip through the magical U bend. Serves them right.
